The number of vehicles registered in Yerevan
in three-fourths of this year shows a dramatic
increase over the number registered in an
entire year only five years ago.
According to Yerevan traffic police, during
the first eight months of 2003 over 21,000
cars were registered - 18,000 privately,
and the rest for state use. As recently
as 1998, less than 1,000 were registered
in a year's time.
